    Vision
    • Every child grows up in a healthy, safe world free from exploitation and/or abduction.

    Mission
    • Educating families and communities to prevent the exploitation of children.

    Values - we believe:
    • It’s a kid’s job to be a kid and it’s the adult’s job to protect all kids.
    • That every adult should see every child as someone who may need their help and protection.
    • The word “willingly” as in "the child went willingly" should not be used in the same sentence with the words “children or teens”

    Programs and Services
    • Prevention Education: prevention education delivered to adults, children, teens and community coalitions or agencies.
    • Helpline Assistance: support, resource referrals and advocacy for the families and communities who experience a missing or exploited child or teen.
